To stopping top-posting

I am still fighting my little personal battle against mindless-forwarding in chain-letters (I call that Wild-CC) and top-posting in e-mails.

Today I've had another confirmation (as if I needed any) that top-posting is a bad way to reply to a message. I had sent an e-mail discussing several points and asking for some feedback about a technical issue, and I got a reply with a single line on top saying basically looks good; now it is always good to see someone agreeing with you, but what about the questions I had posed?

Maybe I am stupid and pedantic (a dangerous match), but I had to send back another e-mail in order to ask for confirmation about one of my questions. Time wasted, mine and sender's.

It must be no coincidence that “top posting” is the anagram of “to stopping”.
